How we deliver educational purposes in daily activities

  • Constructions – Our kids are enjoying playing blocks, building the castle, making something useful with their creative minds and skillful hands.
  • Arts and Crafts – When creating arts and crafts, children are able to develop their fine motor skills. Artwork also enables children to expand their sense of colors.
  • Little Chefs – Cooking helps kids learn about different foods and develop healthy eating habits. Cooking plays as a key part of culture and family traditions.
  • Language Week – International Languages Week is an annual event held in New Zealand to promote understanding of multiple languages and culture.
  • Exploring Science -We always encourage children to question their surroundings, discuss with teachers so that we learn and grow together.

How we build cultural diversity and pride

  • Christmas Celebration– We celebrated Xmas with various exciting activities with children and family through Dec to wrap up a fantastic year 2022
  • Easter Day– Fun activities were designed for Easter including dressing up like bunnies, making bunny masks, painting easter eggs and going for egg hunt.
  • ANZAC Day– Our tamariki made poppies and took a short walk to our community park. It is our way to salute those heroes of our country.
  • Matariki Celebration – Celebrating Maori new year and having whanau to join us for the morning tea session, we built closer bonding and embraced diversity.
  • Birthday Celebration – We are truly blessed to have those loving and caring parents to partner with us along every milestone of our tamariki.
  • Graduation – We are proud of  our children’s development with great joy seeing them walking confidently towards next brilliant journey.

How we encourage discovery and exploration of nature

  • Butterfly Creek – Excursions are an interesting way to develop children’s confidence and curiosity as they are able to explore and understand the outside world.
  • Ambury Farm -When spending time with animals, children build all senses of connection, empathy and caring  so that they master a sense of responsibility.
  • Kite Flying – Our children got some ideas of man-lifting kites which were made for entertainment and then development of the first aircraft.
  • Gardening– Planting is one of the easiest ways to improve the environment and beautify our surroundings. Plants also help reduce our carbon footprints.
